Pennsylvania Fines Casinos $35,500

Pennsylvania's Gaming Control Board has slapped land casinos in the state with fines for self-exclusion violations as well as other illegal activities.

The regulator fined Wind Creek Bethlehem $20,000 for failing to stop a self-excluded gambler from playing table games at the casino, despite him visiting multiple times and having multiple attempts to stop him. The state's gambling laws require operators to identify and prevent those who're self-excluded from playing.

Mountainview Thoroughbred Racing Association, the company that runs the Hollywood Casino at the Penn National Race Course was also fined for a self-exclusion violation, as a self-excluded gambler cashed a check at the casino and played slot machines.

The final fine went out to Underdog Sports, who got an $8,000 fine for offering daily fantasy sports in the state without a license.

No comment from the regulator or the operators involved was available as of press time.
